HOWL-OWEEN CONTEST

I'm going to add myself to the people who ask for votes for their special someone in a contest. My dogs, Kai and Luca, are entered in a contest with proceeds going to Norwegian Elkhound Rescue. Each vote costs $1, so I will understand if there aren't a lot of votes. It's on the honor system, payable by November 1. Although it's called a contest, the only actual prize is supporting abandoned and rescued Elkhounds around America. If you vote, vote for whoever you think is the cutest/funniest; Kai and Luca will not mind either way BTW, Luca is "The Prisoner from Alcatraz" and Kai is "Countess Puppula"

How adorable they both are! At least I'm not the only nut that dresses their dogs up for Halloween. It was a hard decision, but I voted for Countess Puppula - the cute creative name was the deciding factor.

Thanks Beth! I actually avoided the "dressing" route and opted for Photoshop instead. Luca will grudgingly allow us to dress him in Tshirts (to keep him calmer around the house) but Kai will never be one of those dogs that willingly allows the cute reindeer antlers for the annual Christmas pic...or anything LIKE it!

You could have just gone along with it so I didn't feel like the only nut who dresses their dogs up for Halloween! (I almost forgot - you can see a cute Halloween photo of the said dogs in my profile!)
I'm glad I could help though. I'm a sucker for cute dogs.

I had a dog that was part Norwegian Elkhound and part Shar Pei. He was damn ugly but he was a great dog. Smart & loyal.

Sniff.

Lodi: Luca apparently has some musk ox in his background...he is going to be 2 in a few days, but has STILL not grown into his dog suit. We pull his neck rolls up around his face and make him into a shar-pei every now and again. He loves it. No really, he does... Thanks for the votes! I couldn't help but give devil dog a few votes myself...she's so adorable (she is in the previous page) and who can resist a puppy?? It's almost not fair!

Beth: Your dogs are the most patient dogs EVER. They actually look like they enjoy wearing those outfits! And the one that is dressed up as a baby is VERY convincing and quite cute. You should take that act on the road!

I wanted to bump this up to ask again for votes or for entries to this contest. Each vote or entry is 1 US dollar, and the money goes to Norwegian Elkhound rescue. The next 10 people who enter pictures of their dog (or I guess any pet) and then post here will get a pledge of 5 votes each from me!

My dogs are on page 5 (Prisoner and Count Puppula) but even if you don't enter or vote, you may love looking through all of the pages at the pictures. There are some adorable newborn puppies and a lot of really funny costumes. This is a cause that is very dear to my heart, since my dogs were both basically puppy mill rejects

Norwegian Elkhounds are beautiful, loyal and loving dogs, and they don't smell like dog! They can also help you bag that moose you've so longed to hunt down. Here is an Elkhound in action...stay put for the slow-mo!

Prisoner just got 5 votes. The Countess was also adorable, but since Prisoner had such a lead votewise I gave him my support in hopes of a landslide victory.

Great cause! Hope you bring home the trophy.

I want to thank everyone who has gone to look at the dogs and who has voted, but the administrator just wrote to me telling me that Luca (The Prisoner) now has over 700 votes just in the last two days alone! I really appreciate everyone voting, but I wanted to make sure that I reiterate that each vote is a pledge from the voter of 1 dollar toward Norwegian Elkhound rescue. This is a fundraiser for the rescue...the entries do not win a prize, so please! If you can't pledge money, that's fine...Please just enjoy the pictures and don't worry about placing votes! Here is the website again:

http://elkhoundrescue.org/contestPg.php?pageNum_pix=4#spot

The pledges will be collected when the contest ends on October 31st and they accept paypal. Thank you all so much for your generosity...it really means a lot to me to have such support for one of my favorite causes! If you'd like to see the dogs you'll be helping or if you think a Norwegian Elkhound might be for you, there is a list of rescued and fostered dogs at the bottom of the page here:
